Smartlipo Reshape Your Body. Reshape Your Life

Smartlipo laser body contouring at Hedden & Gunn Plastic Surgery is a minimally-invasive, laser-assisted liposuction procedure that destroys fat cells and stimulates collagen production, targeting trouble sports that won't respond to diet and exercise.

Less than 1 hour treatment time, one treatment session required, less discomfort than traditional liposuction, minimal downtime

How It Works

Smartlipo uses local anesthesia to numb only a specific area of the body that is being treated, so you're awake during the procedure.

The Smartlipo laser fiber is inserted through a very small tube into your body, the laser ruptures the fat cell membranes and the fat cells are permanently destroyed.

The liquefied fat is gently suctioned out. Because Smartlipo actually tightens the skin through coagulation, you don't have to worry about dimpling and sagging skin.

Typically, only one treatment is required, results can usually be seen within a week, with continued improvements over 3 to 8 months.
